PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — In preparation for the start of this year’s Philadelphia Flower Show, which starts Friday, Bloom Philly window decorating contest winners were announced Thursday. 

Jimmy Owens with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society flower show explains their weeklong extravaganza of spring always starts with the Bloom Philly window decorating contest announcement.

"We give people a little bit of time to decorate. They submit their images to us and then we sit with our judges and decide who all the winners will be and then we announce it the day before we officially open the flower show," Owens said.


This year, they had some new categories including Most Instagrammable Display, which Thea Scotti of PJ Clarke's won.  

"Every year, we collaborate with one of the local schools, St. Mary’s Interparochial, so the kids created their own version of a rose. And I think this is a very appropriate award for the younger generation who live and die by Instagram, so we couldn’t be happier," Scotti said.

Moneek Pines won Best Representation of the Flower Show Theme for the display at her store, Artrageous on Germantown Avenue, which is an art studio that also does paint and sip. 

She was also the Bloom Philly overall grand prize winner.

"I’m just so excited. I truly am," she said.
